i spent the better part of the afternoon trying to save my favorite succulent. i bought it back in september. it has been dying in thee form of daily leaf detachment since. it looks like a molted parakeet. it only has apx 5 leaves left between the three main stalks. this morning i found out why.
under the layer of absorbent rocks, the soil was molded.
so in spite off all the many, many things i needed to do today, i went to target to buy succulent soil and a new pot. they didn't have it. so i had to go to the plant nursery. where i bought a pot and another succulent. and the soil.
then i took the dying succulent and washed all of the molded soil off of it and put it in the pot with the dry soil and the new succulent and the other succulent i had in my living room.
i really hope it live. for some reason it's survival is awfully important to me.
